History, experience and credibility are our trademarks
Integrity Voting Systems is a division
Printers, a company founded in 1908 and still going strong.
K&H is driven by a commitment to
integrity, vision, perseverance, perfect and timely. That
commitment makes K&H (and Integrity Voting Systems) possibly
the most customer-focused and production-ready private election
services vendor in the United States.
K&H started providing public election services in
1932. We now serve more than a third of the counties in the western
U.S. relying on vote-by-mail.
Drawing on the vast elections experience gained over a period of
70 years, we formed IVS in 2001 as a provider of
private elections services. In the years since,
we've proven ourselves worthy of the trust of many guilds,
associations, unions and boards. We repeatedly exceed their
expectations because we are guided by our five core principles, but
also because we have the equipment and the people required to excel
as a provider of private ballots and election services.
As a division of K&H Printers, we have amazing firepower at our
fingertips. We have the technology, including a great IT team. We
have created our own proprietary ballot printing systems. And our
people have extensive knowledge about election processes. Speak to
any of our IVS staff, and you'll hear the language of the election
services industry loud and clear.
